Sale Or Disclosure of Personal Information
We do not sell consumers’ personal information.
Your Rights As a Californian
California residents have the right to make the following requests to covered businesses. The requests may be made by a consumer, by a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or by a person authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf.
Right To Request Information About Collection, Disclosure or Sale of Personal Information
You have the right to request that a business disclose to you: (i) the categories and specific pieces of Personal Information the business has collected about you within the past 12 months, (ii) the categories of sources from which the Personal Information is collected, (iii) the business or commercial purposes for collecting or selling Personal Information, and (iv) the categories of third parties with whom the business shares Personal Information.
If a business sells Personal Information, or discloses it for a business purpose, you also have the right to request that the business disclose the following with respect to the 12-month period preceding your request: (i) the categories of Personal Information that the business sold about you and the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was sold, and (ii) the categories of Personal Information that the business disclosed about you for a business purpose.
This type of request may be referred to as a “Request to Know.” Before we can honor a Request to Know, we need to verify that the person making it is the consumer whose Personal Information we have. Our method for verifying any particular request weighs information we receive as part of the request, the sensitivity of the consumer information at issue, and the risk of harm to the consumer from unauthorized disclosure.
Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information
You have the right to request that a business delete any Personal Information that the business has collected from you. This type of request may be referred to as a “Request to Delete.”
Before we can honor a Request to Delete, we need to verify that the person making the request is the consumer whose Personal Information we have. Our method for verifying any particular request weighs information we receive as part of the request, the sensitivity of the consumer information at issue, and the risk of harm to the consumer from unauthorized deletion.
We are not required to delete Personal Information if we still need it in order to complete the transaction for which the information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you (or that we reasonably anticipate based on our relationship with you), perform a contract with you, comply with a legal obligation, enable internal uses that are consistent with the context in which you provided the information, or accomplish any other objective recognized as an exception to the right to deletion under applicable law.
Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information
You have the right to direct a business that sells Personal Information about you to third parties not to sell your Personal Information. This type of request may be referred to as a “Request to Opt-Out.”
Because we do not sell consumers’ Personal Information, we do not offer an opt-out mechanism.
Right to Non-Discrimination
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by a business for the exercise of your privacy rights under the CCPA.
How to Submit a Request To “Know” or “Delete”
You can submit a Request to Know or Delete to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests must state “CCPA Request to Know” and include:
- your first and last name;
- an email address at which you can be reached for purposes of the request;
- the California county in which you reside;
- for a Request to Know, the disclosure(s) you are requesting;
- for a Request to Delete, a clear statement that you want us to delete your Personal Information; and
- the reason(s) you believe we have collected, disclosed or sold your Personal Information, specifically, within the past 12 months (for example, you purchased a product or received a communication from us)
If you are submitting a request on behalf of another consumer as their authorized representative, you must include the foregoing information about the consumer and attach a copy of a power of attorney appointing you as a duly authorized representative under California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465 or written permission from the consumer to make the request.
After confirming receipt of your request, we’ll contact you if we need more information in order to verify it. If we can’t verify a request, we may deny it.
If you have any questions about this Privacy Statement or to find out further information about your personal information and how we use it, please contact us at the details below. Your request should be made in writing.
